A professional, friendly guide will escort you to air-conditioned transportation for the transfer north to historic Fort James Beach, just 10 minutes or so away from the pier.
Never tried an eco-friendly Segway before? Amaze yourself with your own dexterity as you maneuver this phenomenon of motion. Within minutes of a complete orientation, practice and fitting of a safety helmet, you're cruising along on your zero-emissions Segway scooter, enjoying how it works and moves intuitively.
Head past the half-mile sweep of Runaway Beach, lined with sea-grape trees and palms.
Swinging back around the large salt pond full of bird life, including cheeky white egrets perching in the waterside trees, you'll reach the track leading to Fort James. Built by the British to repel a French invasion, this most impressive defense structure features full masonic honors. Your Segway allows you to easily conquer the uphill path to history. Park your ride at the wooden gates and step inside Fort James to fire the cannons (only in your imagination, of course!) over the vast Caribbean Sea.
After all that war-waging, make peace around a picnic table to savor your surroundings with a cool beverage in hand.
With time to relax on the nearby beach, you can catch up on a good read, swim in the sea, or do absolutely nothing.
Stamina is required to use ankle and leg movements to control the Segway and the ability to stand for the duration of the tour. Segway participants must remain alert to their surroundings, the condition of the terrain and possible traffic. Maximum weight is 260 lbs; minimum weight is 100 lbs. Minimum age is 6 years. Minimum height is 5 feet. Segway orientation, helmet use, bottled water, soft drinks, and time to relax on the beach are included. Wear your swimsuit under your clothing; bring a towel, reef-safe/biodegradable sunscreen, light clothing to act as a full cover-up for further protection from the sun, and a hat. Swim at your own risk.
